Frompage extentions can be a pain to manage. You are also required to use a different server for your website.

Unless you need Frontpage specific extentions, the your best staying with FTP.

http://www.viatopia.plus.com/

When a user visits your website, it either supplies the specific file they request, or if not specific request is made, a default file is served.

This is known as a index file, and normaly named index.html

This file is currently missing from your webspace. Have you deleted this? Is it available to re-upload?

You need to ensure that the hyperlinks to other pages within your site are `relative` i.e.
 ./page.html

And not the full path on your computer.

OK, I have moved to my machine with FrontPage on it.

Right Click on a hyperlink (in FrontPage) and choose `Hyperlink properties`
Look in the address link near the bottom of the dialog box.
If this gives a full path like
D:\My Documents\My Webs\myweb5\intro.htm

This will not work on your web site it should be changed to;
 intro.htm
or
 ../intro.htm
or
 ../folder/intro.htm

Depending on the relative position of the file that you are linking to.

Hyperlinks to external site should look like;

Looking at the source of your site, all your images point to a directory on the PC - "file:\\\ etc." you need to delete everything in the fie address upto but no including " \images" The reference will then point to your webspace - this is called relative addressing. You should be able to select an option "use relative addressing" when you insert the image in FrontPage.

Check your e-mail. I have sent you a version of your site that "should" have the correct referances.
